Like I said: it eventually started working without me realizing. It wasn't about the fifth time I've used it that I remembered it was broken.
Sorry I can't be much help.

What did you do to get it working. I have just re-updated my system. Uninstalled + re-installed Albert, rebooted my system and it's still not working. I am back to dmenu for the time being. :/

Funny thing (don't know if related or not):
As I was reading this and uninstalled Albert pamac imediatly popped a notification for the qt-styleplugins update.

"Rebuilding should work. Uninstall and reinstall albert."
Didn't work for me either.

------------------------ EDIT ------------------------

It eventually started working so I guess it does fix it.

I tried that before downgrading, it didn't work

Rebuilding should work. Uninstall and reinstall albert. A new build process should link against 5.9. Funnny thing is that Qt actually guarantees compatibility between minor version changes.

Albert appears to have stopped working with the recent updates to extra/qt5-* packages.

Without debug on, running albert gives this:

using qt5ct plugin
FATAL: Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x50800) with this library (version 0x50900)

Re-building with debug on doesn't give any more details

Downgrading the qt packages fixes this issue although this is obviously not a permanent solution

It's not being installed with this error.
:: albert package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD.

Hi, could you please make a release build instead of a debug build? Performance really suffers because of -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug.
